This weekend I read a captivating book with many ideas and strategies of how to raise authentic girls with courage and confidence, “The curse of the good girl”. Important read if you have 3! Empowering my daughters to become young woman who say what they feel and think, embrace their limits and be their authentic self in this world is a goal for me, to try to give them the tools and permission to be themselves, whoever that is.
With the years, I try to be a real mother, instead of a perfect one, be the change I want to see in them, find moments to reach and see them.
I tried to imagine my girls in ten years and I think of them being kind, true, happy, respectful, hard working….but I also think about the battles small or big that they will have to overcome, and the skills they will need to do so.
What I most wish for them, is to be who they are. This book gave me some ideas and guidance to help the girls find the voice in them that is already there and create little spaces where they can safely reach it.
I still believe that the best legacy we can leave our children is our enthusiasm, but now I add for my girls the gift of not only listening to their inner voice, but also act on it with liberty.
It snowed in Madrid today!!!!
I love you Valentina, Grace and Adriana!!
